This is beauty arrived through the door yesterday. I don’t know what it is with me but I get really excited about receiving packages, even though I know what they are and that I’ve paid for them!

I’ve been a bit eBay mad recently though and splurged on so much stuff. But I have a few surprised in store soon though …

I don’t use liquid foundations because I used to have acne and I’m prone to horrible whitehead breakouts when I wear too much or sleep it in – which I sometimes do, unfortunately.

I use Bare Minerals Original foundation that I have to say is pretty amazing, it retails at £24 a tub but I managed to get it on eBay for just £10. Wahey! It was packaged really cute, too!

It’s really light and gives me a good coverage but still looks natural, which is really important to me, as I hate to look caked. It also doesn’t make me breakout, so to me it’s perfection.

Recently however I’ve been noticing dark circles, and my precious Bare Minerals doesn’t cover them as much as I’d like. So that’s where I’m hoping my new Maybelline Mineral Powder foundation will help me out.

I haven’t used it yet but did a little swatch and it seems decent enough so *hopefully* it will. I’ll do a full review once I’ve used it properly though.

Another beauty arrived this morning, which was my new MAC Kabuki brush.

MAC retails them at £32.50, but managed to bag a bargain on eBay (again!) for £10.50. My current brush is just a cheapo and keeps shredding so this one should be better.

Today is day three of my Instagram #FebPhotoADay challenge, but I haven’t taken my picture yet but here’s day one and day two:

Day One: My View

Day Two: Words

OH, and finally!

My beauty box intrigue is turning into an obsession – just ordered a Carmine box. Someone please help me, I’m turning into a monster!

Wants this Week ...

Finally went back to uni yesterday after missing classes due to illness. Don’t really know why I was dreading it, as it was actually okay. I can honestly say I don’t miss the ridiculous commute (almost 2 hours :() but oh well.

Starting FatMumSlim’s February Picture a Day challenge, so will probably be posting a lot of those pictures here. Today’s picture is ‘Your view’ :)

I can safely say I’ve used every product in my Glossybox and I’m officially in love with all of them. Especially the Clarins creams, which was my worry!
